Description

Testing software requires a test strategy, plans and scripts that ensure that all aspects of the software have been tested - both from a functional and non-functional angle. In this course, CSSLP®: Secure Software Testing, you will gain understanding of how testing should discover deficiencies and ensure that all problems are resolved prior to implementation. First, you will discover how to develop test plans and scripts. Next, you will learn about vulnerability assessments and penetration testing. Finally, you will explore how to track and resolve software problems. By the end of this course, you will be prepared to progress into the next domain of CSSLP®.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Kevin Henry, a security consultant, computer analyst programmer, and a holder of the CSSLP, the Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional certification. I look forward to sharing knowledge and experiences with you. Welcome to this course on Secure Software Testing, the fifth domain of the CSSLP certification. This course will help you develop a test strategy you can use to examine application programs and systems and assist you in preparing for the CSSPL examination. The content of this domain represents approximately 15% of the CSSLP exam. Testing a software represents the last chance the organization has to detect and resolve any program or security deficiencies prior to program implementation. Testing, therefore, has to discover any problems through the development of a thorough and creative test strategy. This will identify and classify any problems found and enable them to be fixed before the hackers or users encounter these problems. Some of the major topics will cover included development of test plans and script, vulnerability assessments and penetration testing, tracking and resolving software problems. By the end of this course you'll be prepared to progress into the next domain of the CSSLP, the area of secure lifecycle management. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about the value, benefits, and features of secure software testing, the role you can play in this exciting and rewarding field from this course at Pluralsight.
